The Quiz: What was the name of Germany’s first military strategy for WWI?
Explanation : Created by German officer Alfred von Schlieffen more than a decade before the war, the Schlieffen Plan called for a quick German military assault to knock out France, followed by a second assault against Russia. It relied on precision timing and had little in the way of contingency plans. When France proved more powerful than expected, the plan became ineffective, and a bloody stalemate set in on the Western Front.
Correct Answer: Schlieffen Plan
